8 December - Custom House, 10am - 4pm

Custom House Leith is an imposing Georgian building situated in the heart of The Shore and is currently undergoing transformation after 30 years of under use. Scottish Historic Buildings Trust was brought onboard in 2015 to lead its regeneration and restoration and since then it has become a thriving hub for creative arts.

Visitors can explore the 1810 building as they enjoy a Christmas craft fair, exhibitions, open studios, festive food and drinks, and community stalls, plus a special medley of songs performed by the Edinburgh Gay Men’s Chorus at 2pm. Leith Farmer’s Market (our neighbours in Dock Place) are also open from 10am to 5pm.
